Church of the Palms will hold a community Thanksgiving service, inviting the entire community to gather to give the Lord thanks. This Thanksgiving service will be on Tuesday, November 25, starting at 7:00 pm.
Amidst the calm and beauty of the evening, we will take time to acknowledge God as the giver and provider of all that we have and all that we are.
Everyone is invited for this time of thanksgiving. A time of fellowship will follow the service, featuring fresh sweet breads, apple cider, and coffee. Child care will be available.
Sunday, November 30, is the beginning of the Christian Year, and also the start of the holy season known as Advent. Advent is when we take the necessary time to prepare ourselves for the coming of our Messiah. Our time of worship at 10:30 a.m. on November 30, the first Sunday of Advent, will help us remember this.
As we start our series "Follow The Star!" we will recall the meaning and significance of the symbols common to this season of the year. Through the tradition of "Hanging of the Greens" we will slowly start the preparation of our Sanctuary as these symbols are brought in and placed. Song, scripture, and brief explanations will aid us in our understanding. As the entire season of Advent is to be a time of preparation, the preparation of the Sanctuary will only start on this Sunday, but will then progress to completion each additional Sunday in Advent until we arrive at Christmas.

Did you know...God's blessings surround us each day? They are so abundant that we take them for granted. Blessings overflow, showering us with love, mercy and grace.
We should not take these blessings for granted, nor should we assume that we deserve them. Instead, we should be grateful and show that by being a blessing to others...in word and in deed.
Gratitude and thanks are extended to those who have already started making contributions to the Building Fund in support of Vision 2020.
